Short Video Interview at Mego Meet 2010

The Cast-a-Way guys did a short video interview with James D.(GarageSale on the Mego Museum Forums)at MEGO MEET 2011, that turned out to be unintentionally funny.

Thanks for thinking of us James, and it was done as a serious interview.

Now the video itself? I am not sure if it was a bit/frame issue or what but it came out way strange! It makes me laugh every time I watch it! We look like we have some kind of palsy. I am swinging my head around like I am on acid and Jason's eyes keep shifting around like he's waiting on Ninjas to attack any second... Throw in Brue's cameo as 1/2 of the Wonder Twins and it's pretty surreal... I know it wasn't meant to be funny, but that's why it is!
